Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave works by delivering acoustic waves directly to the area triggering pain. This technology was initially developed to break up kidney stones during lithotripsy, but research shows that many orthopedic injuries improve with Shockwave. This non-invasive procedure does not involve needles or surgery and results are seen within only a few treatments. The device delivers shock waves that are precise and targeted through a handheld wand. Deep tissues can be reached and there are no significant adverse effects. Shockwave is a fantastic alternative to pain medication with some patients experiencing relief after the first visit.

How does Shockwave work and reduce pain?

Shock waves are high energy acoustic waves. During the treatment, this wave is focused through a lens and transmitted into the body, up to a depth of 4.7″. The shock waves interrupt pain pathways of inflamed nerves while stimulating cells and the body’s intrinsic healing mechanism. This leads to restoration of healthy functioning of cells and brings new blood flow to the area to encourage natural healing.
